Hello,

Our i10 is due for a service in a little while, however there is also some work to be done which we're going to claim under the warranty. Would it make sense to have this done before the service or afterwards? I'm trying to decide if it would make any practical difference.

Thanks.

Hi
get it all done at the same time, it'll make no difference getting either the service or repairs fixed at separate times.

when I had my 1st service performed they also done the warranty work at the same time (new rear view mirror, new dash - instrument cluster).

they stamped my service book and gave me a print out of the repairs too.

The only potential issue with this is that if I get the service done at an official centre it will cost more than if I do it an an independent (approved) garage. Whereas I'd like to get the warranty work done at an official centre seeing as I wouldn't be paying for that.

I follow your reasoning there but you'll be aware that servicing outwith the HUK network of approved dealers requires that you comply, to the n'th degree, with laid down criteria. A well aired topic and it's up to you where you have it serviced but it has to be said that some....possibly most....owners regard the cost of main dealer servicing as simply the price you pay for the 5 year warranty and pay it in order to oil the wheels of the Hyundai warranty machine whose requirements are strict enough without one giving them the opportunity to find a further reason for refuting warranty claims.

See the following as taken from the terms and conditions which you and I have to abide by............

The following details and documentation must be available: The Hyundai Owner's Routine Maintenance Information Booklet must be completed at each scheduled service time with the following:
  • Vehicle Registration
  • Date of Service
  • Mileage
  • Service provider stamp
  • Service provider Technician signature
Independent Service Provider Invoices and associated documentation must include:
  • Name and Address of Service Provider
  • Details of the vehicle (i.e. VIN, Registration and Mileage)
  • The date the Service was carried out
  • Details of the work carried out (i.e. What service has been carried out)
  • Details of all parts fitted (which must include: Parts numbers, Description, manufacturer name and individual costs.
  • Details of all fluid replaced and the specification and manufacturer (i.e. Engine oil, Transmission oil, Antifreeze etc)
  • Copy of the service check sheet showing that all of the Hyundai Motor UK Ltd. service schedule and requirements have been carried out.
Independent Service Provider proof of competence:
  • Membership of a recognised UK motor trades organisation or industry association which monitors standards and working practices in automotive maintenance and service provision
  • Technician qualification from a recognised UK training provider in automotive maintenance services, to the appropriate level for the work performed
Important Information:
The inspection and testing of certain electronic fuel injection/engine management and automatic transmission control systems require specialised electronic equipment specifically designed for Hyundai vehicles. The use of general-purpose electrical test equipment may result in damage to the control unit microprocessors.

Is it possible to go and pay for 2/3 years services at a discounted rates?
I'm currently paying £26 a month to my local Hyundai dealer (no APR or added costs) so that when it's time for a service, it's all paid for. I can cancel anytime and get all my money back.

Some people don't like doing this as they are fixed to a certain garage. But my local garage is in the same town as where I live so I don't mind.

Just had a flyer from my dealer group head office re. paying monthly for a plan. It's the one where you pay the dealer (thus are tied to the dealer and hope they stay in business and remain local to you) but does allow cancellation and return of premium (less a £10 admin fee). The premiums apparently start at £10 a month and as I have the smallest Hyundai model in the range I imagine that my premium will just be £10 then. They've promised/threatened to ring me to discuss the matter....we'll see if I'm right.

I think I might not be but am prepared to be proved wrong. I went down this road a couple of years ago with the same people and, indeed, it wasn't £10 a month......I wonder what you have to do to get it at £10 a month? Do they sell a Hyundai push bike?

PS. Shame that the original enquirer hasn't been back to respond to the replies received. One must imagine that they weren't worth replying to?

Did you not read my post#4, Janet 1066?....it was only five posts back from here on this very thread.

Can't really explain it any more comprehensively than that...it shows what conditions have to be complied with if you have it serviced at an independent garage.

I believe £150 for the first service to be at the upper end of the range. There are countless posts on here giving you different people's quotes for services - just use the search facility. My first service was £103 but that was two years ago...coincidentally just today my dealer quoted £120 ish for years one and three(same service)...but then proceeded to write me a written quote for the purposes of a service plan and that was £144.50. So it is all very varied (and confusing) and you're best getting a couple of main dealer quotes and maybe trying to haggle a bit if you don't want to pay £150. There's certainly scope for adjustment given the limited amount of actual work involved in the first service.

Stupidly, I asked "Did you not read my post#4, Janet 1066?..." above.

Obviously not.

What a waste of bandwidth this little topic was. The OP, Mister something or other couldn't be bothered to reply to all the useful/useless (you choose) info. that people took the trouble to post. Oddly enough there was a MisterX on another motoring forum who was much more active.......until they banned him for trolling.

I suppose there'll be another rash of posts when the new version of the i10 comes out......"shall I buy the new i10?", "what advantages does the new i10 have over the old one?"......

Oh well, such is life.

If I've understood this correctly (it would help if you put some full stops, capitals and question marks in :)) you originally asked if you could go to an independent garage to have the regular maintenance/service carried out there. I referred you to a previous reply of mine, just a short way back, which detailed the criteria which you'd need to fulfil in order to keep your warranty intact. This was the question to which I refer........

my first service is due the dealer has said general check over oil change oil filter cost with vat £150 it seems a lot of money can i get this done at a vat registered local garage please.

You posted this question a week after my, fairly comprehensive, post detailing the servicing requirements (as referred to above).

I subsequently (on the same day as your post) asked if you had you not seen my earlier post and went on to try to offer further thoughts regarding servicing arrangements and costs etc ..... and heard nothing for three weeks .... and now you're saying.... 'did not reply oldstan what was the point'. ( having amended it from .... 'didn't want to start an argument'). I think the "point" of replying would simply have been a matter of courtesy in acknowledging the advice offered up in the earlier submission.

Since you've troubled to respond this evening I would reiterate that it would have been nice if you'd troubled to, at least, acknowledge the advice offered following the question you asked as it's generally considered a matter of courtesy to respond to replies given to you in the spirit of assistance. However, I wasn't going to pursue the point any further, obviously. Nothing to be gained - water under the bridge etc. But as you've raised the point this evening it's only polite of me to respond...hope that's OK and trust we need not engage in further protracted dialogue.

I agree my post which contained a reference to Mr X was bad tempered and founded in irritation at going to the trouble of writing posts which are intended to add to the sum of the debate and proffer an element of helpfulness only to hear nothing back and if you was upset by my inclusion of your goodself, then I apologize unreservedly.

I extend my good wishes.
